Unbeaten leaders Juventus lit up Serie A by trouncing hapless AS Roma 4-0 to go three points clear.

Arturo Vidal scored twice in the first eight minutes as rampant Juventus took advantage of a slip-up by second-placed AC Milan, who needed a last-minute goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to snatch a 1-1 draw at home to Bologna.

Juventus, chasing their first scudetto since they were stripped of the 2005 and 2006 titles in the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal, have 71 points from 33 games while Milan have 68 with five matches each to play.

Third-placed Lazio, who have 55 points and are in the Champions League qualifying round spot, conceded an injury-time equaliser in a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Lecce.

They have a three-point cushion over Udinese, who drew 0-0 at Chievo on Saturday, with Napoli a further point behind in fifth and Roma on 50 points in sixth.
